Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog....um.....Smiles?

Ok...so it doesn't rhyme.  But it does describe today's projects pretty well.

The first project is called "Snips and Snails"....


Making baby "stuff" is just the BEST!  It's so little and sweet and.....ugh....I just love it!
This is a newborn onesie.  I stamped the snail image from the Button Buddies stamp set on an iron-on Tshirt transfer.  Before that though I printed out the "Snips and Snails" title on it using my printer.  Don't forget to "tell" your printer you want to print the page "reversed" since you will be ironing it on. "Oh, Michelle!  How do you know that it's a very important step in the process????"   Um.....yeah.  I've made that mistake more than once.  *sigh*  Once I had the image ironed on and it had cooled down I simply sewed on a cute SU! button.  So simple, right??  Wait until you see the PIG onesie I made with the pig stamp from the same set!!!! 
Oh my Lordy!!  It's too stinkin' CUTE!

Ok...now for the "Puppy Dog....Smile"...

Ok.....now seriously....how cute is he???? 
This cute little guy is made just using a couple of my Stampin' Up! punches and some scraps of card stock!  I sponged the edges of the Whisper White pieces with Crumb Cake ink to give the shapes a little depth.  The ears are Chocolate Chip...the collar and the background are Real Red.  I embossed the Real Red piece using the Stripes embossing folder.  The "dog tag" and the brads are Daffodil Delight for just a pop of color and the card base is cut out of Basic Black card stock using the Square Scallop Die on the Big Shot.  I popped up the Real Red piece with Stampin' Dimensionals and I punched out a window for the sentiment using the Modern Label Punch.  "You're the BEST" is stamped in Basic Black ink inside the window on the background piece of card stock.


Doesn't he just make you SMILE???  I know I am because I love quick and easy cards!

Ok....here's a BIG REMINDER.....
Today is the LAST day to get your Designer Series Paper on the Buy 3 Get 1 Free special.  There's still time so don't wait.  Just think...you could take that $10.95 you save and treat yourself to something sweet.
